Value-Based Payment Models: The Key to Success


A variety of government programs and policies are driving value-based payment models, which use quality metrics and cost targets to reward and incentivize health care practitioners. Can these emerging models lead you to success as a pharmacy practitioner, manager, or owner? Find out from innovative colleagues who have made these models work in their practice.
